Despite the price we'd paid, we were shoved into a basement room with no window, full of damp. Our clothes stank after a few hours. Said they were full and would not give us a different room. Queues at check-in, queues for breakfast. Would avoid like the plague.

I took my two young daughters here for an overnight stay at the seaside recently. It looked exactly what I was looking for. Close to the beach, reminiscent of the halcyon days of the British seaside tourist industry, and big enough to have all the facilities of a modern day hotel. How wrong could I be? A queue at the...
